Practicing Programming to increase your value

About this Episode
I want you to get the most out of being a software developer, or test engineer, or whatever you do that makes this podcast relevant to your life.
By "get the most" I mean:
- the most fun
- the most value
- more career options
- probably more responsibility
- maybe even more money, that'd be cool
I want you to start (or continue) studying and practicing your skills.
But not just random practice, I've got a strategy to help you focus what to study.
Why am I talking about this now? Here's some background on how I re-learned how to have fun with code refactoring through code challenges.
I'm going to write up the whole list as a blog post, which I'll share first with my Patreon Supporters, second with my email list and slack channel and then as an actual post somewhere.
